What are OER?

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that you may freely use and reuse at no cost. Unlike fixed, copyrighted resources, OER have been authored or created by an individual or organization that chooses to retain few, if any, ownership rights. In some cases, that means you can download a resource and share it with colleagues and students. In other cases, you may be able to download a resource, edit it in some way, and then re-post it as a remixed work. How do you know your options? OER often have a Creative Commons or GNU license to let you know how the material may be used, reused, adapted, and shared.

What are some examples of OER material?

    Full university courses.
    Interactive mini-lessons and simulations.
    Adaptations of existing open work.
    Electronic textbooks.
    Elementary school and high school (K-12) lesson plans, worksheets, and activities.
